. and that was especially true today. i know there's not a parent in america who doesn't feel the same overwhelming grief that i do. the majority of those who died today were children. beautiful little kids between the ages of 5 and 10 years old. they had their entire lives ahead of them. birthdays, graduations, weddings, kids of their own. among the fallen were also teachers and men and women who devoted their lives to helping our children fulfill their dreams. so our hearts are broken today. for the parents and grandparents, sisters and brothers of these little children, and for the families of the adults who were lost. as a country we have been through this too many times. whether it's an elementary school in newtown or a shopping mall in oregon or a temple in wisconsin or a movie theater in aurora, or a street coroner chicago, these neighborhoods are our neighborhoods, and these children are our children.ner chicago, these neighborhoods are our neighborhoods, and these children are our children. and we're going to have to come together and take meaningful action to prevent more tragedies like this, r

that can no longer be relied upon to act great. i really don't want to be there. either america wins or it loses. heading off that cliff is losing, and i want the republicans to take their part in avoiding it. we need a pervasive, frightening message from the president to see they take it. we don't need a smile from this president or an inspiring speech. we need cold, awesome words of warning. we need a president to scare the dickens out of those people. and that's "hardball" for now. thanks for being with us.

speaker boehner's position in the congress, but maybe bad for america. what about that dynamic? >> well, the president has said publicly that he is very focused on the priorities that he ran on in this last election. and as you have talked about, this whole question of budgets and asking wealthier individuals to pay more was not a side issue in the campaign. it was a central issue in the campaign. and i have faith that the president is very focused on that. obviously every member of congress reserves the right to look at any agreement to make sure that it does reflect those priorities. but everything the president has said indicates that he is working to get an agreement that is good for the economy and deals with the long-term deficit in a balanced way, meaning that high income individuals are going to have to contribute more and share greater responsibility. >> and what about raising the age of medicare eligibility? there are reports that a deal where rates would go up to only 37% in exchange for raising the medicare eligibility age. is that workable? >> i think that's a bad idea, ed.

of the united states of america to go down the tube, that was a game of chicken i've never heard of in all of my years in politics. how much could they hate the man or hate his politics or be so insensitive to the poor? that they would tell the entire world that the united states is not prepared to pay its obligations. and that taught me a lesson which we're learning now. how far are they willing to go to you hurt the united states of america? and when is it not going to be party politics but what is good for our country? >> well, let's listen to senator mcconnell. more of what he has to say. because his words haven't provided much comfort to those who feel that the senate should be serious in its obligation to the american people. let's take a listen. >> as i indicated, the president called me and probably called others last night. my impression is he would like to see if we can move forward. we don't have very many days left. and i've indicated i'm willing to enter into a discussion, see what the president may have in mind. >> now, mcconnell said, look, the president should have been talking l
